Solvent alternatives for Metal Wadding Polish Image Transfer - Mixed Media Question- Mixed Media Art Question


HI!

I once watched one of your Youtube videos, about using some sort of solvent to alter a page from a coloured magazine. I can no longer find it.
Could you link me to that video and what did you use to remove the ink? It looked like some sort of wool from a tin, that looks very familiar to me?

I've been reading about the usage of Citrasolv , to remove or to smudge ink, having seen it on a Diana Trout Youtube video.
We don't have that product here and I was wondering if you knew of any alternatives that I could use that aren't so smelly and are more natural?

Does this method work on all kinds of magazine pages or only on certain types?

Thanks.

Hi Palma ,

I belief you are referring to a solvent transfer that uses a kind of polishing wool .
The trick is that only some type of magazines work well for this kind of image transfer and that is those which have a high chalk content in their printing inks.

High End magazines such as National Geographic , posh fashion magazines and table top magazines that are meant to be read and kept are good contenders to look for. Generally the thicker and less glossy the page the better it works.

As for alternatives to the image transfer solvetn ... it is a kind of polish that is used in the motor industry, here in the UK to polish motorbikes so is available in car supply stores ( Halfords for those in the uk) The product that I used is called " neverdull .. http://www.nevrdull.com/

Nail Polish Remover and a cotton wool bud can work as well as long as one uses the nail polish remover that contains acetone, as that is the ingredient that will loosen the printing ink.

Hope this helps
Milliande :-)
